Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services
Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets’ complete health care needs.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. We perform soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. LASER is used routinely for many surgeries. Below are some benefits to LASER surgery (read more):
Less Bleeding: As it cuts, the laser seals small blood vessels. This drastic reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with conventional scalpel.
Less Pain: The CO2 laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less edema and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
Reduced risk of infection: This is one of the unique features of the CO2 laser beam. It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.
Quicker recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery after the surgery.
We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient’s vital signs (blood pressure, oxygen saturation, continuous EKG) are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Internal Medicine Consults
We offer in-hospital ultrasounds, an external expert is called in to perform endoscopic procedures as necessary. Dr. Forrest Hayes is our external expert conducting these procedures.
We provide care for most of your reproduction needs from progesterone testing, ultrasound for pregnancy checks, C-sections, neonatal and puppy care.

We offer Home Again microchip identification. A HomeAgain microchip is permanent pet ID. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pet’s shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.
